The Resume

The resume is a great tool to impress colleges with your organization, preparation and confidence.  Hand one of these every time you meet an admissions rep. 

I require one from any student who wants me to write a letter of recommendation.  I expect it at least two weeks before you need to have it sent or for me to fill out the common application.  This way I know everything about you beyond our common classroom experience and your transcript.


College Application and Scholarship Information Notebook

Complete a two page typed document for each of at least ten (10) schools your are considering for application and place it in a well organized folder/binder then present this to your parents.  You will save yourself, your teachers/guidance counselors, and parents a great deal of time and headache by making this the first assignment of your senior year.  Complete the following:


1.  The name and address of the School

2.  The phone number of the school to include the admissions department 1-800 number and the contact information for the department you plan to apply.

3.  The Web address of the school

4.  The email address of the school

5.  The deadline date for admissions application

6.  The deadline date for scholarship application.  Is a separate application necessary?  Are separate slides/images and/or essay required?

7.  How many images are needed for application/scholarship portfolio?
